    Hey,

    Just wondered if anyone else has an ectopic Kidney? I have, my right kidney is not in the right place (ectopic) and therefore it has not grown to full size and probably doesnt work at all (or if it does - very little function) and it caused me alot of UTI's as a child, but I have had no issues as an adult. My midwife is aware of it and I have always had regular blood tests which are clear, but I was interested to see if anyone else has this condition and if being pregnant can cause problems i.e. added pressure on the working kidney? Any feedback is much appreciated x
